Today I was supposed to testify as a witness to the incident next door with the rogue backhoe but apparently the scumbag plead out. Thank goodness.
After I found out that I now had a free day the delivery company called about the rubber mulch I ordered. The could deliver today! The landscapers charged me next to nothing to sod cut and to dig down 3" to put down mulch around the girls' play set. Today's job consisted of laying the landscape fabric and 5000 pounds of rubber mulch. We decided to go with it because of the safety factor as well as the cost factor. Every year we re-mulch the house. Every year we say.... we are switching to every other and it just never looks good enough to switch. So it was an easy decision. Its pricey... but it never needs to be redone! Dad helped ALOT. He loaded the bags onto trailer and drove the tractor to the area. There were 125 40# bags. The man will need some Motrin tomorrow!!! We got everything laid out in about 2.5 hours. I have to trim up the landscape fabric but I was going to wait a week or so until 1.) the rain stops and 2.) the mulch settles a bit. All I can say is that it looks FANTASTIC!!!
